With a recent increase in flexible working and self employment, more people than ever are working from home. For the price of a single year of rented office space you could create your own office from unused space in your garage. In addition to the rental saving, you will also add more value to your home than the initial outlay, making a garage conversion a shrewd financial investment too.
Ideally you want to ensure your working environment is warm, with good lighting and comfortable. We can remove the garage door and replace it with a large window, perfectly matching your existing ones, which gives you plenty of natural light to work in. We insulate the floor, ceiling and walls, in line with the latest building control guidelines so the room will be the warmest in the house. We can work with you to design the best layout. Usually this means an access door through to the kitchen or hallway to provide access to facilities while you’re working. Again, we’ll match the door and level the floor so the look is seamless.
Other considerations are location of sockets, lights and switches, cabling and internet connection. You may need to take into account storage or security. We can tailor make solutions for all those eventualities including a separate entryway.
Creating a separate home office enables you to close the door at the end of the day and separate your home/work life. Something we can all benefit from.
